Scouts Caver Activity Badge
« on: February 13, 2019, 05:53:20 pm »
This video was made in collaboration with the Shropshire Scouts Caving Team.
It was filmed on Sunday 3rd February in Llanymynech Ogof, on Saturday 9th February in Porth Yr Ogof & Bridge Cave and on Sunday 10th February 2019 in Ogof Ffynnon Ddu.
To earn the caver activity badge each young person must take part in at least 4 trips to at least 2 different cave systems.
Each visit must be as a member of a properly led group.
A record should be made of the trips and the routes followed.
A good knowledge should be developed of the caving and cave conservation codes, and the environmental issues around caving.

The intention is to make a documentary film to promote the Caver Activity Badge but as this is likely to take some I've put together this short promotional video.

Thanks both. I was very honoured to be asked to produce a documentary for the Scouts. The children were all great and were very natural in front of the camera. The documentary will take a few weeks to edit so that's why I produced this short teaser. It does seem to have gone down well.

The documentary is almost finished and so should be uploaded to YouTube within the next few days.
